Knowing Wisdom

Wisdom is the source of all consolation.

To know Her is to know intimate sweetness.

To draw near to Her is to draw near to the Nameless

From whom She arises and before whom she plays ( Proverbs 8:22).


And yet we do not draw near for our sake.

But for Hers,

And thus the more we long for Wisdom,

The more we listen to Her,

The more we are compelled to teach Her ways,

And to celebrate the teachings of others, especially Jesus Christ,

Who is the human incarnation of Wisdom.
